Google debuts Android L (5.0), plus wearable, auto, TV versions

At Google I/O, Google previewed Android 5.0’s new UI, and also unveiled Android TV and Android Auto, while offering new details on Android Wear. Once upon a time, Android was just one of many topics discussed at the yearly Google I/O developers conference. Now, the Linux-based operating system is crowding out Chrome, search, and enterprise news, not only in its standard mobile configuration, but in spinoffs including new Android-based platforms for TV set-tops, automotive infotainment, and wearables.
